(books not currently available)
The Public Catalogue Foundation has a catalogue of all the publicly owned oil paintings in the United Kingdom. This is freely available online, but also exists in book form and they have given a limited number of books to Wikipedia editors via Wikimedia UK (but you don't need to be in the UK or a WMUK member to get a book).
In 2014 the Public Catalogue Foundation generously agreed to give complementary books to 12 Wikipedia editors to use, distributed at the discretion of the community. Editors need to have written content in the Art field in order to qualify, but you don't need to be in the UK or a WMUK member - books have already been sent to editors in Australia and California.
Email glamWikimedia.org.uk stating your Wikimedia username, your choice of book, where we can send it and giving an idea as to what you will do with it. As we need a physical address to send you a book please don't apply on this page. We've used our quota of donated books.
